These days, every fun time is a stolen moment, so here I am, committing petty theft. Society's loss is your gain, because I bring you a mixtape: the 99th. [CURSE YOU FOREVER, LOST EPISODE 19.] This was a Tuesday night "Test Pattern" slot, and therefore featureless, but still wall-to-wall awesome.
Numbers. What are they? Do they mean anything? I try not to place too much value on them, even when they indicate milestones, as "100" would seem to. For a while I thought something Special might happen for the 100th iteration of this program. When that fell through I was resolved to plow forward "as normal." And then, even better, a space opened up on short notice allowing me to do a "surprise" program. Many things in the history of this show have fallen into place in just the right way. The very first Bombast was one such thing. This one is another. With any luck there will be more.
